Unveiling the evils of contraception
By Jenn Giroux

It is important to take a hard look at the research that is reported from Planned Parenthood's own research arm, The Guttmacher Institute. Any discerning eye can see that their recent results ("Unsafe abortions kill 70,000 a year," Oct. 14) always point to the need for more contraception availability and abortion.

Their president, Sharon Camp, states that the actual health and survival of women is damaged by highly restricted and unsafe abortion. She pushes the myth that birth control distribution and availability actually drives down the abortion rate. It is well documented by Camp's own employer that 56 percent of women who present for abortions do so from failed birth control. Abortion advocates who push contraceptives on unsuspecting women unquestionably know this.

As a registered nurse for 24 years, I have seen the physical, mental, psychological, and spiritual damage done to women from abortion and contraception. Clearly, the most healthy and effective means of assisting women in America and around the world is by teaching God's plan for abstinence when not married and Natural Family Planning within marriage. Thankfully, the Catholic Church has always stood firmly for the good of women and families.

In the late 1960s, it was very difficult for many to understand why the Church refused to allow the use of The Pill. Today, hindsight is 20/20. Divorce, adultery, STDs, plummeting birth rates ... it is obvious that the Church was right. America no longer loves children and refuses to trust God with the unpredictable.

And now we are exporting this evil embrace around the world. This recent report also states that women are dying from abortions in third-world countries due to unsanitary conditions and unskilled practitioners who are performing them. To this I can only say: Welcome to America. The very nature and environment of abortion clinics here and around the world are unregulated, unsanitary, and unrestricted.

Women deserve the real truth — not the statistical results as seen through the rosy glasses of Planned Parenthood's Guttmacher Institute, which brings the abortion industry more business and women more heartache. Contraception must be exposed for the evil and ugliness that it is. It doesn't prevent abortion. It leads to it.
